Synology today announced RackStation RS812+ and RS812RP+, expandable 4-bay rackmount NAS servers bringing high performance, scalability, and reliability to small and medium businesses. “Synology RS812+ and RS812RP+ are built to address the needs of businesses that require high performance and maximum system uptime to run mission-critical applications,” said Peter Chen, Product Manager of Synology Inc. “They ensure business continuity with an array of redundancy and availability features,” added Chen. Both models feature a passive CPU cooling technology, a fan redundancy mechanism, and dual LAN network failover support to eliminate a single point of failure and maximize system uptime during malfunction. Redundant power supplies in the RS812RP+ further assure uninterrupted service. To reinforce system availability and maintenance efficiency, the hot-swappable hard drives and easily accessible circuit boards are designed to be user-replaceable. Powered by a 2.13GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM, the RS812+ and RS812RP+ achieve read and write speeds at 202.31 MB/sec and 175.11 MB/sec respectively in RAID 5 configuration with Link Aggregation enabled. When businesses grow, they can leverage the expansion capability of a Synology RX410 to scale up the total storage space to 8 hard drive bays and upgrade system RAM to 3GB in tandem with their expanding workloads. With comprehensive iSCSI support, the RS812+ and RS812RP+ provide seamless storage solutions for major virtualization servers, including VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer and Microsoft Hyper-V. Synology RS812+ and RS812RP+ run on DiskStation Manager 4.0 (DSM 4.0), the operating system of every Synology DiskStation and RackStation. DSM 4.0 provides rich features to boost users’ productivity and simplify their tasks, all on a sleek user interface optimized for multitasking.
